GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES ON THE IMPLICATIONS FOR LAND RIGHTS AND THE CARE ECONOMY
ABOUT THE EVENT
For some, Gender Just Transition is at the heart of a powerful narrative of hope, tolerance and justice; a narrative that is grounded in people’s actual lived experiences and aspirations to guide collective action while simultaneously giving rise to tangible alternatives. Not all stakeholders, however, share the same idea of what a Gender Just Transition should look like, or how, for whom and by whom it should be accomplished. This makes it difficult to clearly identify what a Gender Just Transition stands for and how it links with land rights and the economy of care.
This two-part discussion will bring together a wide range of stakeholders for an achievement oriented discussion of how to empower an inclusive and equitable just transition where care and land rights and tenure security converge to drive meaningful change. We will highlight the voices and agency often overlooked in decision-making and discussion including grassroots communities, Indigenous and rural women, and youth. We will also consider how to support the importance of research and data for the foundation of policies with a gender focus for a just climate transition, and will connect the gender transition for land rights and the economy of care to the COP28 negotiations and broader policy context.
